The community energy revolution: further progress

“The Local Electricity Bill’s wide appeal is no surprise, given that it will create benefits to our local economies whilst boosting clean energy generation across the country.”

The Power for People campaign has been gaining ground:

The community energy revolution – Vision Group for Sidmouth

.

Their Campaigner has got in touch with the VGS:

I write with some excellent news regarding the campaign for the Local Electricity Bill: 

Good Energy have become the first national energy utility to publicly endorse the Bill. 

This comes after an exciting few months which have seen the number of supportive MPs hit 200, and the likes of Black Environment Network, Environmental Justice Foundation, Green Energy Together and Energy Saving Trust all giving their support for the Bill as well. We now have 56 county and local authorities, 385 local organisations and 55 national organisations on board.

In response to the growing support, MP Peter Aldous said: “The Bill’s wide appeal is no surprise, given that it will create benefits to our local economies whilst boosting clean energy generation across the country.”

The message also thanked the VGS’s SidEnergy for its support:

Community energy: planning now for the future – Vision Group for Sidmouth

.

And they provided a link to the page of who’s supporting the Bill – and East Devon’s MP is behind it:

Local Electricity Bill – Supportive MPs & Coalition – Power for People

.

Here’s more news about the company Good Energy and its support for the Bill:

Good Energy and Power for People have called on MPs to support the Local Electricity Bill, in an effort to spark a community energy revolution as part of new campaign.

The law would create a new ‘Right to Local Supply’, allowing communities to sell locally generated electricity directly to local households and businesses.

As MPs return to Parliament, Power for People – an NGO focused on community clean energy – together with the supplier have urged them to back the pair’s Community Energy Revolution campaign for the Bill.
